Dotfiles

Stow is awesome, go find a manual actually

But here's the gist:

You make a folder inside ~/dotfile

You put any files that have to be in ~/ inside that folder

Then you say stow folder and stow will make sure the symlinks go there.

So for example, if you have ~/.vim and ~/.vimrc in your home, you can:


mv ~/.vim ~/.vimrc ~/dotfiles/vim/

cd ~/dotfiles

stow vim

et voila!

FAQ

  • by default, stow's stowage directory is ., target directory is ...
  • @sid You might need git submodule init && git submodule update, in case the folders inside vim/.vim/bundle are not updated. Not sure.
  • DO NOT DO rm * in home. (No I totally didn't do that embarrassing mistake so I just wrote this randomly)
